Concert Postponement

Skipton Music regrets to announce that our concert with the Solus Trumpet Ensemble, originally scheduled for Tuesday 7 December 2021, has now been postponed to Tuesday 5 April 2022. This is because our lead artist, Matilda Lloyd, is currently undergoing emergency dental treatment, following which she will be unable to perform for a period of 2-3 months.

Any tickets already purchased will automatically be valid for the re-scheduled date. If, however, you are unable to attend on 5 April 2022, you may request a full refund. Please direct all enquiries regarding refunds in the first instance to TicketSource (tel: 0333 666 4466 or email Alternatively, you can contact the Box Office at Skipton Town Hall directly (tel: 01756 792809 or email

Please note that Skipton Music cannot handle any ticket-related queries as our Box Office is now operated exclusively by Skipton Town Hall in association with TicketSource. Please note also that we do not expect to be operating a system of distanced seating by April 2022 but will confirm any changes closer to the re-scheduled date.

Skipton Music would like to express our sincere apologies for any inconvenience and hope that you will join us in wishing our artist a speedy recovery.

Formed by Matilda Lloyd, international trumpet soloist and BBC Young Musician Brass Final winner in 2014, the Solus Trumpet Ensemble features five of the UK’s leading young professional trumpeters, who regularly perform with top orchestras and chamber ensembles such as the London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester and European Union Youth Orchestra.

The concert features a range of works by revered composers of brass music such as Gabrieli, Tomasi and Brandt, as well as new arrangements of pieces never before heard on brass. The programme travels from the US to England and then all around Europe, spanning continents and musical periods and finishing off with a jazzy arrangement of the spiritual "Battle of Jericho"!
